Hello, I just purchased a Corsair TX650M power supply and a Sapphire Radeon HD7950 video card for my son's AMD Phenom II X6 processor and N-Alvorix-RS 880 motherboard. I went to install the power supply and my motherboard has only 4 pins for the black and yellow wires. The new Corsair power supply has an 8 pin on the end of it.

Assuming you have the correct cable, it should break in half like this

They are asymmetrical so only one side will fit.

If it won't break in half, you might be holding one of these

Looks very similar but should break into 6+2 rather than 4+4.

The power supply he has has a 4+4 so it should be able to break in half.
